One of the most commonly adopted approach in modeling of turbulent reacting flows is the Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC). Initially developed in the 1970s by Magnussen and Hjertager (1976), EDC was formulated as a well-established turbulent combustion closure model in the 1990s - 2000s by Magnussen (1989), Gran and Magnussen (1996) and Ertesvåg and Magnussen (2000).

edcPisoFoam is a state-of-the-art solver for turbulent combustion modeling (non-premixed and premixed) based on the OpenFOAM® technology. A fully compressible solver incorporates the conventional Reynolds-averaged formulation (unsteady RANS), Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) and hybrid RANS/LES models. The Eddy Dissipation Concept with a detailed chemistry approach is used for the turbulence-chemistry interaction. A robust implicit Runge-Kutta method (RADAU5) for integrating stiff ordinary differential equations allows to calculate chemical systems of any type of complicity. All these features allow to simulate the unsteady combustion physics in very accurate and efficient manner.

The edcPisoFoam technology has the highest level academic references as well as detailed validation & verification studies. Several well-known in the literature combustion test cases are provided as entry-level examples.

Turbulent reacting flow simulations with detailed chemistry are resource expensive even for two-dimensional problems. The main reason for this is the finite-rate chemistry and non-linear coupling between the turbulence, chemistry and radiation. The edcPisoFoam application demonstrated quite good strong parallel performance (around of 75% ideal) comparable with other commercial CFD software packages.

The edcPisoFoam has basic and premium commercial technical support as well as entry-level and advanced trainings.
